Call for Papers - European Voices: Actors and Witnesses of European Integration
March 16-17, 2007 | Graduate Institute of International Studies, Geneva
Current historiography on the process that led to the creation of the three European Communities widely acknowledges the role played by states, as well as by some of their major political leaders, diplomats, and civil servants (among them Monnet, Schuman, de Gasperi, Adenauer, Bevin.) Less attention has been given to non-state actors, to their visions of Europe, their stakes in the integration process, and the means at their disposal to voice their opinions and influence the process of European unification.
HEIRS's third colloquium, entitled “European Voices: Actors and Witnesses of European Integration”, aims to shed light on the position of non-state actors, while at the same time furthering research on the role of states in the European integration process.
The colloquium also aspires to foster the dialogue between historians and scholars from other disciplines in the area of social science, among them political science, sociology, and anthropology.
Deadline: January 12, 2007
